Robin is a versatile young English conductor/composer with a reputation for dynamic performances across a wide range of contemporary and established repertoire.
Following tours as Assistant Conductor for English Touring Opera's critically acclaimed Spring Tour (March-July '23), and Associate Music Director for OperaUpClose's The Flying Dutchman (July '23), in September 2023 Robin began a three-year tenure as Chief Conductor of the Liverpool Mozart Orchestra, an orchestra with whom he has already built a fruitful relationship. Recent highlights with the LMO include Schoenberg's Chamber Symphony No.2.
Forthcoming highlights also include a run as Music Director for Gothic Opera's Rip Van Winkle (Oct-Nov 2023).
Equally at home in front of a full symphony orchestra, period instrument ensemble or contemporary music specialist ensemble, Robin brings a driving energy and detailed eye to his wide repertoire. He has worked with ensembles such as the London Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, Manchester Camerata, Psappha, The Old Street Band, and Northern Ballet Sinfonia. He has assisted conductors such as Sir Simon Rattle, Sir Mark Elder, Vasily Petrenko, Vassily Sinaisky, John Storgårds, Dalia Stasevska, Ben Gernon, Gerry Cornelius and others. He recently held the position of Mills Williams Junior Fellow in Conducting at the Royal Northern College of Music, relinquishing the post in September 2022.
Robin is also a professional composer, arranger, and editor, having arranged for both classical and cross-over projects with a variety of ensembles. He regularly works as an arranger for the ensembles such as the BBC Philharmonic and OperaUpClose. His arrangements have been broadcast on national and local radio stations such as BBC Radio 3, Radio Cumbria, Radio York, and Radio Lincolnshire, and his reductions of orchestral works for chamber ensembles have sold internationally through the COVID-19 pandemic.
